Teluk Intan

From Wikitravel
Jump to: navigation, search

Teluk Intan (formerly known as Teluk Anson) is a city in Perak, Malaysia.

Leaning Tower of Teluk Intan

It is the center of Hilir Perak district and the third largest town of Perak state. Although the name means "Diamond Bay", the town is not located near a bay. It is founded around the oxbow meander of the Perak River, making the town looks like near a bay. The locals believes that in the future, the river’s flow will erode the narrow neck of the land between the loops of the meander and turning the town into an island.
